Forum: prelinger Subject: Re: Resolution/Wurlitzer Tour Issue

Interesting observations. When I get back home on Monday, I'll look at the tapes from which we digitized and see whether they offer any clues. I do recall the Wurlitzer film is half kinescope, which is inherently fuzzy, and the color portion is out of focus.

A bit of information about resolution. We attempted to encode files at 1/2 D1 at the very beginning of this project, and were erroneously told to set the encoder at 368 x 480 rather than 352 x 480. The 368 files are a problem, I know. Later we decided to encode other files at 480 x 480 (2/3 D1). We didn't do full D1 because of bandwidth limitations at the time.
